I fail to see any difference.
A RAM disk has preallocated memory that nothing else can use, and an entire filesystem inside it (journal and everything). Whereas a cache can be overwritten, has just the data of each file, and the OS keeps tabs on where it is in memory (should a program need that memory, it will give it the address and remove the entry from it's Big List O' Files In Memory).
When is this available and where?
Separate names with a comma.
